Just because it looks right from the outside doesn't mean it's a good repair. I certainly found that out on my Cutlass. The lower quarters looked good, but it was basically 1/2" of filler over some rusty metal that was about as solid as swiss cheese.

Bottom line is yes you can get away with filler (and I admit, there's some 3/16" spots on my quarter, especially where I used the slide hammer), but I wouldn't send that out on a professional job.

Couldn't have said it any better.

He's not dealing with rusty metal though. Your right about how thin you should spread mud but the reason I said I wouldn't bother is because it is such a small area. With that area being so small it's not gonna crack or have problems later on. When you get in to bigger dents that cover more area then by all means they need pulled out as much as possible.

Also I'm by no means say that a 1/2" of mud is acceptable because it clearly not. It's just Such a small area that it would be a waste IMHO.

That damage isn't particularly difficult to repair, but it will require paint. If you're able to get to the back side of the dent on the driverside rear quarter, you can straighten that out with a little off-dolly work. If not, a stud gun and slide hammer would get it close. A stud gun and slide hammer should get the damage on the passenger side quarter close enough to skim coat and block.
